M'Lissa Trent, Ph.D., and Hanalei Vierra, Ph.D., Conjoint Couples Counseling

We are a married couple who work together with couples to provide a balanced and
supportive atmosphere where both male and female perspectives are respected.
We believe that both individuals in a relationship are responsible for creating
the discord as well as the harmony, and so we invite each member of the
couple to address and change what is challenging the relationship
in order to create a more loving and effective partnership.

Along with Conjoint Couples Counseling, we each work with individuals in our private practices on a number of issues regarding personal growth and/or life challenges…
     M’Lissa Trent, Ph.D. (Psy14479) specializes in empowering women by helping them to: understand and be who they are in relationships; deal with issues underlying depression/anxiety; develop a strong sense of self; understand and manage symptoms of trauma/abuse and eating disorders; make successful career and life choices in order to develop a more fulfilling life. Dr. Trent is also trained in EMDR (Levels I & II), which she utilizes as an effective tool to reprocess many layers of difficult and traumatic experiences.

     Hanalei Vierra, Ph.D. (MFC30982) specializes in helping men learn better ways to: communicate more effectively and become more emotionally accountable in their relationships; get a clearer picture of the many levels of trust necessary to make a relationship succeed long term; cope with the loss of a relationship, job, health, or loved one; understand mid-life depression or anxiety in a productive way; identify and overcome the obstacles hindering personal happiness and freedom. For more information on the work I do with men and couples, please click on my web page at: www.HowToKeepHer.com/couplesadvice.html.

We also author a weekly relationship advice column in three local San Diego newspapers
under the byline, "Dr. He Said, Dr. She Said."
